Good News: Boehner Probably Won’t Golf With Obama Again

Speaker of the House John Boehner probably won’t ever golf with President Obama in the foreseeable future because some folks get “bent out of shape” about it, according to the Hill. Last week, Speaker Boehner did an interview on the Golf Channel where he detailed his golfing outings with the president. Both Boehner and Obama like the sport to relieve stress.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he is unlikely to hit the golf links any time soon with President Obama because people get “bent out of shape."

“The President has suggested, ‘Hey, do you think it is too much trouble to play golf again?’ ” he said in excerpts of an interview on the Golf Channel airing Monday.

“I have to look at him and say, ‘Yes, because everybody gets bent out of shape worried about what we are up to, when all we are really going to do is just play golf.’ ”

The avid golfer dished on his 2011 round of golf with Obama, when the two defeated Vice President Joe Biden and Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio), who is now running for the GOP presidential nomination.

Obama invited the speaker to golf with himself and the vice president, giving Boehner the choice to pick a fourth. When he brought along Kasich, Obama decided to split up the Ohioans.

“The President and I whipped up on them pretty good and they paid up,” he said.

“As soon as we got in the cart I said, Mr. President, just remember something, this is just golf.”

At the same time, the president has been criticized for the amount of time he’s been on the fairway, especially after he made his way back onto the course once he delivered his remarks condemning ISIS for murdering American journalist James Foley while vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard last summer.
